[applause] >> thank you very much. thanks for coming, everyone. while we change the slides in the front, let me say thanks to all of you. those of us who write and do research are dependent on a vast network of support, and i want to express a public thanks to archivists, to historians, colleagues and friends and the editors and publishers who helped me on the journey that i'm going to be speaking with you about tonight. um, and i want to start out by saying something you probably have never heard at the beginning of a history lecture which is that it's okay to laugh. as the cartoon on the screen suggests, there are some laughable moment toss the story -- moments to the story that we're going to be thinking together about tonight. some of it is going to strike you as a little bit funny, and it is from our vantage point. tonight we're thinking back to the years 1944-'46, the end of the second world war and the transition to peace.
>> good evening commissioners. we are with security and we are working with live nation as well. before i start i want to point out that we do a lot of different events and different venues. this is really a sailing event. so the type of crowd that we are attracting is a mellow crowd. it makes this event more enjoyable for all kinds of ages. also live nation has done a great job of picking out the type of talent does greatly with this type of event from a security standpoint our job is not going to be that difficult. we are dealing with a great crowd and everything seems to be okay. a few things real quick, i would like to commend and acknowledge the live nation organization. they have gotten everything down to detail. there is no surprises and we don't have anything unexpected happen and we are one step ahead of the game. this event definitely has enough space. pier 27, 29 is newly renovated and up to code so we don't have to worry about other things that come with old property or old land. the capacity plans seem to be great. they are estimate the capacity low for the stadium
. the comment now on the amendments that you have received from live nation that came in an hour-and-a-half ago. i think those comments in general were responsive to the concerns that the neighborhood steering committee had raised several days ago however there is one concern that is outstanding and that is no. 5 with the possible use of pier 27 and 29 as a concert venue in the long-term. we understand the contract situation with live nation and understand what is supposed to happen under the contract and certainly will happen at the end of october. there is a number of residents in the neighborhood who do not want to see any concerts at all, not this summer, not next year, whatever. they are not in that category. so we think there does need to be an amendment on item no. 5 and recommend on a 3rd line in the end striking within the foreseeable future and strikeing the phrase proximate in size. with those amendments that would remove my concerns and give the citizens of the northeast water front comfort. in the end we want a successful america's can -- cup for local residents. >> hi, i'm in ma

by their but idge. >> i level of concern about the federal debt is high. >> the nations that is the most significant problem. >> when you have a total national government debt that is the size of the national economy, you have a problem. our debt exceeds the size of the economy. it is over $16 trillion of gdp. of the problem is what has happened over the last several years with the recession. the recession led to declines in tax revenues. congress introduced tax cuts that caused the deficit to grow and we had federal government spending -- the newest spending that was -- stimulus spending that was higher than was the case before the recession. >> the recession hit and the debt skyrocketed. what caused the debt to reach a high point russia mark >> -- to reach a high point? >> the american people. we want welfare spending. we won all of the spending of the government spending and we do not want to pay the bill. >> this is like going to the mall with your dad's credit card. it is fun. you go shopping. maybe there are limitations, but in the end you are not the one paying. you have to think of it diffe

to explain that a little bit. this is our 40th anniversary of having a national park in san francisco. so, those strikev lands at the golden gate hills right behind that helicopter there are now part of the golden gate national parks. and that happened 40 years ago when the army decided that those lands were no longer necessary for national defense. so, that strategic entrance to this harbor was the last land that our troops and sailors and marines and soldiers would see if they departed for the pacific theater in world war ii and korea and vietnam, and also the first thing they would see upon returning back to the bay area. so, between the presidio and the head lands, we now have wonderful park lands that have been converted. we call it converting from post to park. repurposing those lands from national defense to environmental defense. and i believe it is probably the most accessful base conversion in the united states. if you haven't been to the presidio, i think you should try and make that. if you're from out of town, it's a spectacular transition there. so, these golden gate nationa

of national parks. conservationist and writer wallace stegner called the national parks, "americas best idea". wallace stegner wrote the wilderness letter in 1960. [sandra day o'connor] wallace stegner at the end of his life was disillusioned with how the west had allowed development to overtake its natural beauties and its natural bounty in favor of development. [narrator] wallace stegner described a concept called "the geography of hope". he believed wilderness was necessary even if one never traveled to it. it's important just to know it's there. [robert redford] he saw the wilderness and preservation of the wilderness, and i agree with this, as the reason to preserve it because it told us who we are as a people, and as a nation. [page stegner] it generated a lot of activity, which lead, ultimately, to the passage of the wilderness act. [narrator] the wilderness act was created by congress in 1964. [senator bob bennett] wilderness designation is, perhaps, the most severe designation that congress can put on a piece of land in terms of anybody using it, or accessing it. [william meadows] p
violence in our communities and it must end. yesterday i signed into law the nation's first ban on possession of halopoint ammunition in san francisco. we worked closely with supervisor cohen to introduce this legislation. these extra deadly bullets have no place in our streets. we are also creating an early warning system to alert us when individuals make massive purchases of ammunition, because even if there is a remote possibility we can prevent another tragedy, we are morally bound to do so. and we must support president obama and senator finestien comprehensive effort to reform the gun laws, i support state and federal effort to keep the weapons off of our streets and out of our homes. i have directed our city agencies and law enforcement officials to move towards plans of action, to prioritize and create solutions that impact policy changes and take aggressive actions against the moment egregious types of gun violence and we are working hard and making more plans for more deeper, more wider gun buy back programs and events that will take place later this year. but no singl

. he may be considered average or below average, but the nation deserves better than this partisan rush to judgment. guest: one thing worth noting is that history does change a lot of times. people who are down in history can be judged later and have a renaissance. sometimes when history changes, world events change. perceptions of a president can change. 35% view george w. bush in a positive light. right now there seems to be a negative judgment, but it remains to be seen if it changes over time. certainly his political legacy is going to be front and center at this library being unveiled on thursday. host: he says he hopes that jeb bush runs for president. guest: that is what a good brother should always do. all indications are that jeb bush may be thinking about a al whether he decides to make a run is something we will find out later on. we have a lot of time before 2016. there is this early jockeying taking place. we talked about rand paul earlier, marco rubio and his maneuverings. is a fascinating story, but we will not have any kind of definite conclusion for another couple of ye
